that's all because the bay area cares. again, thanks so much. i think that woman said it all, especially the emotion in her voice. >> yeah. >> weather-wise, we've got the usual behind us pretty much? overcast? >> that's right. and its pretty dense in spots. we have coast all around the bay, but from up above it looks pretty good. this is a view from mount tam. we will see plenty of sun today. the microclimate once again in full swing. i'll explain coming up. >> and also next, fighting for the wildcard. the a's open an important series with the baltimore orioles who were seeing double affeldt this one. affeldt this one. larry beil has the highlights i'm a professional stylist

>> lisa argen joins us now. it's inspiring to see that beauty out there. >> yeah, it is nice out there. clear skies for the friends in the east bay, and danville, you are clear with temperatures in the upper 50s." but look at all the fog from below. when you get closer to the bay, you will notice that the low clouds and fog are hard to discern here. the little hole in the overcast above keeping us clear in san francisco. but the marine layer is about 1200 feet deep. so as we pan around looking like
a fine morning out there, you can see a little bit in the way of the cloudiness there. so temperatures today will be affected by the low clouds, the fog, and as a result we will look for temperatures right around normal today. so pretty nice afternoon. if you are looking for it a little warmer, the warmer day comes today. tomorrow we cool off a little bit as our marine layer increases and the onshore flow also allows for the cooler air to head across the bay. so live doppler 7hd right now showing that the fog is into the east bay. also pushing a little bit further past castro valley. but it looks like you will be clear this morning for the try valley. so that's nice if you are headed for a bike ride or a run. 55 in oakland, holding right at 50 for napa and santa rosa right now. 57 in san jose with upper 50s in the southwest wind by the delta. so this morning temperatures really no big surprises out there. and this afternoon we will look for numbers around the bay to
once again be in a wide range from around 60 at our coast to near 90 inland. and the cooler weather comes in tomorrow anywhere from about two to five degrees, as an area of low pressure gets a little bit closer to the bay area. here's a look right now at the fog. you will notice from that earlier shot that we had it over the bay. so from hayward, san leandro, castro valley, the bay shores, it will be gray to start and then by 10:00 you should see sun. afternoon highs mainly in the 70s and 80s around the bay with near 90 today. it looks like it will take a little while to get the warmth back across the bay. so if you like it on the warm side, taking a break from summer, as this really is the official last full week of summer, and then by the end of the work week looks like warmer numbers head back. here's a look at our water vapor imagery. it tells the story with the high to the east. the low that's been hanging out in the pacific. really not influencing our weather too much. but by tomorrow it will get a
little bit closer and that's going to mean that we are going to see a few subtle changes around the bay with temperatures coming a bit lower. and that will take us below the average. we should see about low 80s north end of the bay, south end of the bay, and things change-up a little bit for tomorrow. 9 in fremont today with 81 in san jose. 63 half moon bay. we will be sunnier at our coast with 80 in santa rosa. we will look for the temperatures in the south bay for the renaissance fair. coastal cleanup to be pretty impressive for september with 60s and sunshine here. mid-70s santa cruz and upper 80s in gilroy with 86 in hollister. everyone has been talking about the a's. and tonight, 6:05, 62 degrees with the fog beginning to creep back across the bay. upper 50s by about 10:00. and the cool down starts tomorrow. it's kind of been like this the past couple of weekend. we will see the cool weather leng are into the early part of the week. but it's really how long that fog lasts in the morning. today about 10:00, 11:00.

his film was partially shot just north of downtown l.a. his company, media for christ, is all locked up this morning. in his weekly address president obama denounced the attacks on americans overseas and defended the filmmakers religious freedom despite the worldwide violence it has triggered. >> i made it clear that the united states has a profound respect of people of all faiths. we stand for religious freedom. and we reject the denigrate of any religion, including islam. but there is never any justification for violence. there's no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women. there's no excuse for attacks on our embassies and consulates. so long as i am commander in chief, the united states will never tolerate efforts to harm our fellow americans. this morning anti-american protests continue to spread across the globe. demonstrations are being held in some 30 countries. at least four people have been killed so far in the chaos. u.s. troops are on their way to

the white house called it offensive and reprehensible and then reached out to youtube to call the video to their attention and asked them to review whether it violates their terms of use. >> when the white house calls you up and asks i about a video, it sends a message and has a chilling effect. >> she's a coordinator for san francisco's frontier foundation. she sad google has blocked it in many countries but the idea the us might consider censoring it would be problematic. >> they would have to demonstrate that the message of the video was illegal in the some way and the first amendment is a fairly strong stumbling block to that. >> google responded they have restricted it to comply with local laws. goggle states, we restricted access to it in countries where it is illegal such as india and indonesia and libya and egypt given the
very sensitive situation in those countries. >> the man who made the anti-muslim video is a felon who is banned from using computers or the internet as part of his sentence. the probation department is reviewing whether he violated the terms of his five-year probation. in the newsroom, abc7 news. >> things could be a bit more hectic than usual at sfo the next few weekends. one of the runways is closed for repairs until monday morning. same for the next two weekends. they will be inspecting the runway and installing new lights as part of a federally-mandated safety upgrade. the fleets will be reduced from 60 per hour down to 30. final preparations are underway for the space shuttle endeavour's final voyage that will take it over the bay area on his way to los angeles. yesterday it was mounted atop a boeing 747 at the kennedy space center. it is taking off on monday. and come thursday it will make its way through the bay area.
